Wilba - Answered a Question by Johnson (13 Aug 08 17:55)

Hi! I've done Cabo & Vallarta on a similar cruise. Cabo is really a beach type resort & people who did the Beach/Horseback trip said it was very enjoyable & I'm sure this could be DIY if you wanted to save some cash as all cruise excursions are notoriously expensive. P.Vallarta was a cab ride into town for us & a sit in a bar I'm afraid, so I have no knowledge of the tours as I'm a diehard DIY tripper. You can always talk to people on the ship as the majority will be Yanks, & some will inevitably have done it all before & you can book on board quite easily if you feel the need. One point, don't worry about local currency, they will take $US gladly.

I posted a huge answer on this as I have been on this cruise but obviously it was not allowed. Sorry. I tried.

It will probably appear in the next 24 hrs after it's been vetted. I don't know if your aware, but they now have 'automated moderation' on this site & it picks up on words or phrases & blocks instantly what it doesn't like the look of even though they may be perfectly innocent! So watch this space, Regards.

Do You Have A Bucket List?

By Gail Ryan

Gail Ryan's blog

Do you have a bucket list? If so, what’s on it?Until a few years ago I don’t think I had ever heard this term, had you?
